ICSE 2002 Technical Papers
Technical papers describe innovative and significant work in Software Engineering research and practice. Papers are collected in an archival, refereed conference proceedings, published by ACM/IEEE, which is cited and read by researchers and practitioners world-wide. Accepted papers are presented at the ICSE conference, attended by hundreds of people. Having a paper on the technical program gives authors an opportunity to have a tremendous impact on the study and application of Software Engineering principles, theory, and techniques.
Paper submissions to ICSE are reviewed rigorously by the Program Committee, who are volunteers drawn from the international technical community of Software Engineering researchers and professionals. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness of rationale and evidence, quality of written and graphic presentation, and appropriate comparison of results to relevant research and literature. Because there is no revision cycle, the content and presentation of submitted papers must be essentially acceptable as received.
The software engineering community consists of researchers and practitioners from many different disciplines and intellectual traditions. Technical papers report on a full range of topics relevant to this community, including software engineering principles, theories, techniques, tools, and empirical evaluations.
How To Submit
Submission of abstracts followed by full papers will be accepted electronically beginning August 2001, using a web form. Submission of an abstract by September 10 is required before submission of a full paper. In brief, you must follow these steps:
Additional Instructions for Authors
The standard ACM conference proceedings format includes sections for keywords, general terms, and categories and subject descriptors. Do not include these sections in your paper.
Authors using the LaTeX "option 2" templates: The option 2 templates produce papers formatted for A4 paper by default, however ICSE 2002 requires papers formatted for US Letter paper. To produce a document formatted for US Letter paper, use LaTeX to produce a .dvi file, and then run the following command:
dvips -t letter -o paper.ps paper.dvi
This produces a postcript paper formatted for US Letter paper. You may then use the Acrobat Distiller to create a .pdf file for submission. If you have questions concerning the use of the LaTeX templates, contact Michal Young.
Each submitted paper conforming to the submission guidelines will be reviewed by a group of at least three members of the Program Committee. The committee members will develop a summary review and recommendation for acceptance or rejection, in addition to comments directed to paper authors. Final decisions will be made at a program committee meeting, where the committee as a whole will review the recommendations and rationale made by the reviewers. Authors will be notified of the committee decision, and provided with comments from the reviewers, by electronic mail.
